Weekend Recap: Wine Tasting and Cross-Country Skiing

Leadville_Mineral_Belt_Trail_XC (1)

After the five days up in Minturn for last weekend’s ski certification, I was excited to have a weekend where I could stay home and see my mom and Sadie more… with nothing really planned. Though you know me – in spite of having no actual plans, I ended up having a pretty busy time 🙂 My weekend kicked off with a wine tasting happy hour for work. I was the event organizer, and with a limited (though generous) budget, I had the option of hiring someone to do the wine tasting for us, or doing it myself and then …

Weekend Recap: French Wine Tasting and Impromptu Stapleton Half Marathon

French_Wine_Cheese_Tasting

My Friday night kicked off with lots of my favorite people: J and I had a Zoom double date with my friends Heather and Kirk, and then we watched Great British Bake-Off with my mom! It was a great mix of “social time” (at home) and time cozied up on the couch (though mom has her own couch across the room, to keep a bit more distance). It’s funny how much “socializing” has changed in the wake of COVID. To elaborate on the Zoom double date: each couple ordered a set of three bottles of wine from Wine.com, and then …

Weekend Recap: Much-Anticipated In Town Time

Chris_Birthday_Sunset

This weekend, for once, I wasn’t going up to the mountains; instead, I was staying in town for some special events I had been planning for a while. I was excited! Friday was a busy day for me at work, made even busier when I saw a steal of a deal on a sectional outdoor sofa on Facebook Marketplace and dropped everything to immediately pick it up. Patio furniture is one of those COVID products that has become impossible to find; every store is completely sold out / backordered, and I’ve been reluctant to order online sight unseen because patio …

Quarantine Goals, Take 2

75_Hard_Challenge

Next week will mark two full months alone in quarantine for me… something I never imagined when this all began. And yet, I’m finding that I’m reasonably content. I miss my friends, and there are definitely bouts of loneliness. (As someone whose love language is touch, and who is always hugging friends, it’s nuts to me that I haven’t touched a single human in two months!) But I track my mood each day in the Daylio app on my phone, and I’m still rating most days as “pretty good” or “great” – which I guess proves the hedonic treadmill right. …

Treadmill Workout: Base-Building Endurance Run

Base_Building_Treadmill_Endurance_Workout

Oh my goodness, I can’t believe it’s almost April! Last weekend I finally noticed the snow becoming crusty in the morning and slushy in the afternoon… telltale signs that spring is here. In years past, I didn’t mind too much, because I loved not being freezing and didn’t care as much about the snow. But this year, I’ve got heated boots that have totally eliminated my need to stop for toe-warming breaks, and a lot more vert I’d like to cover before the season is done for good. However, springtime also means that race season is approaching… and I am …
